We had a nice night watching jazz here one night. The drinks were good, the jazz was great, but the service was just okay - it took a long time to get a server to get more drinks, then they were out of half the things we ordered (which is not uncommon in Cuba). But as Lucia A mentioned below,... More

Great jazz but a staff that feels the need to lie about what time the music starts. Came at 9:00, told us it started at 9:30 and it started at 11:00! Total lie to get you to drink and eat.

The location - on the top floor of a "mall" may seem like a less than ideal spot for a romantic evening of jazz, but the restaurant has done a good job at filling the space with comfortable seats where you can settle in for 1-3 sets. There is a cover and a 2-drink minimum but this is only if... More

Stopped here to get a lunch during visit in Havana. Nice view, good drinks, but very bad AC, only one toilet working (over 50 people inside) and taste of the food (we had fish) was weird.. Staff confused. Ok, but don't await something special. Maybe in the evening with entertainment it is better.

This is a nice little spot right across the street from the Hotel Melia Cohiba. Good jazz and decent drinks. The combo we saw featured a good frontman on vocals and horn, a very good bass player on one of today's obligatory 6-string instruments, great drummer, and a good guitarist. I have never, ever, seen a solid body electric nylon... More

Not only was this a lovely respite from the heat but also a lovely modern, clean and tidy place to eat, drink and relax. The starters were excellent value and surprisingly large for next to no money at all. A must to visit

Were told by our hostess at the appartment about the Jazz Cafe. It's a really nice one, with live jazz music. FOod is good and cheap. Friendly staff and plenty of fun. Good to visit when in Havana.

If you are lucky and can hear some of the marvelous Cuban Jazz.... This is one of the top spots. We were there the night of David Faya and his group. The audience included jazz dignitaries from Argentina, Germany and more.... It was a joy to hear and be a part of the unique music of Cuban Jazz.

Cool, classy upmarket venue for Cuba. Nice food and great live music. Service a little slow but no worse than anywhere else in Havana. Spent a very pleasant evening there.
